Our latest harvest oil from our own private estate - Mirabello Estate in Crete;
organically grown, the koroneiki olives are hand picked just as the olives are turning from green to black, and pressed the same day.
The acidity is low, less than 0.4%, demonstrating the quality of the olive oil
This oil is very high in polyphenols (400-600mg/kg),meaning it is highly anti-oxidant and healthy and is a key element underlying the health benefits of olive oil
This is an unfiltered olive oil, so may appear cloudy and have sediment at the bottom; this is normal for an unfiltered oil, and does not affect the quality or use of the oil; unfiltered oils generally retain more polyphenols than unfiltered oils and may have more flavour
The olive oil not only has excellent health benefits, it also tastes great; however, bear in mind that due to the high polyphenol content, the olive oil does have a potent bitterness and pepperiness - but these are DESIRABLE organoleptic properties.
It is ideal for dips and salads, but also one of the best oils to cook with
